Time Out says

Chef, restaurateur and writer—Norman Van Aken is prolific in all three roles. The two-time James Beard Award winner and author of six cookbooks (and a memoir!) mines his extensive collection of recipes for My Caribbean Kitchen, a delicious retrospective of the very best dishes the chef was inspired to create along his winding journey, through the warm waters of the Florida Keys and South Florida, where island flavors fused with his own ever-evolving culinary style. The menu is a delightful celebration of regional specialties reimagined for local palates. From Key West’s famous sloppy joe filled with Cuban picadillo á la Miami to chicken á la brasa with a tropical fruit chutney and, of course, Bahamian conch fritters, it’s Caribbean cuisine done the NVA way.
